eQUAL oPPORTUNITIES

Mother Goose Nurseries’ practices are underpinned by equality of opportunities and inclusion. We work to ensure that all children, parents, and staff have  equal access to all the facilities and opportunities that the nurseries provide, irrespective of their age, gender, racial, or ethnic origin, culture, home language, family background, religion, sexual orientation, learning difficulty or disability.

cultural DIVERSITY

To help support the children’s positive understanding and attitude towards their own and other cultures, the nurseries celebrate a range of different religious festivals and customs throughout the year. Children and parents are encouraged to contribute knowledge about the culture and customs from their own family background.

Inclusion

The nurseries encourage all children attending to take part in all activities and to develop a positive approach toward equality. Discriminatory attitudes will be confronted and more positive attitudes encouraged through explanation and activities. In cases of continuous abusive, discriminatory comments or attitudes, your child’s place will be terminated.

Special Educational Needs

We are committed to working within the 0-25 SEND code of practice. Children with additional educational needs are welcomed into our nurseries. Staff work closely with parents and other key professionals to ensure that these children receive maximum support to learn and develop skills across the seven areas of learning.

Each nursery has a designated member of staff who has received training in supporting children with additional educational needs. They will help parents to seek additional support if necessary, to enable their child to reach their full potential.
